ECON 3408 - Economics for Life
Increasingly, people are expected to make their own personal financial choices. Economics, which is often defined as the study of choice, provides a structure for making these decisions. This course is designed to help a student, regardless of his or her major, to understand what options are available with respect to a given financial choice and how to go about deciding which one is best in terms of that student's preferences. Among the financial choices that may be discussed are: whether to rent or buy a house or apartment, whether to accept a current job offer or wait for a better one, and when and how much to begin setting aside for retirement.
